Lautoka files protest against Rewa import

Following their draw against Rewa over the weekend, Lautoka has filed a protest against the Delta Tigers for fielding a player with a wrong license number.

Rewa had fielded Nigerian Nuraini Onisemo Akanu in the much tensed match which handed the Blues their first tie of the National Football League.

In the protest, Lautoka is alleging the player played under an incorrect license number since his license number in the National League registration form conflicted against the number stated in the team slip for the match.

The Fiji Sun/Weet-Bix NFL leaders are also claiming that Akanu does not have proper clearance to feature in the domestic competition.

Fiji FA is expected to hear the protest in its next board of control meeting.
